Maryland at the bottom in Race to the Top?

The editorial page is writing an editorial about Maryland's slow take-off on trying to get Race to the Top funds from the U.S. Department of Education. If successful, Maryland would get as much as $250 million in stimulus money next year, but the state appears to have been slow to position itself for the funds.

A preview of the editorial is here. Tell the editorial board what you think about this issue.

I hope you link this Blog entry to the editorial in today's Sun discussing how we lost Gates money and the needed reforms some of us have clamored for for years!
